BJYM activists to hoist tricolour at Srinagar Lal Chowk

The Bhartiya Janata Yuwa Morcha (BJYM) activists will unfurl the national flag at the famous Lal Chowk in Srinagar to demonstrate solidarity with the people of Jammu and Kashmir and their commitment to fight the separatists movement.

Addressing a rally of BJYM activists here last evening, the BJYM National president Anurag Thakur, and party MP Navjot Singh Siddhu declared their intention to carry out the flag hoisting at Lal Chowk and dared J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdulla to prevent them from doing it.

Launching a scathing attack simultaneously on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi, Thakur said that the Prime Minister was maintaining a stony silence on the Kashmir issue and even on unpatriotic remarks made by Syed Ali Shah Geelani and noted writer Arundhati Roy.

They accused Dr Singh, Abdulla of "buckling under the pressure of separatists." "Where was Congress Yuwraj (Rahul) when educational institutions were closed for almost five months due to law and order situation there? He had no time to talk to Kashmiri youth and understand their plight," Thakur said.

Opposing any dilution to the special powers given to the armed forces, Thakur, a second time MP from Hamirpur (HP) said, "Only two districts in Valley were affected but an impression was given that entire Kashmir was burning." Siddhu criticised Rahul for his remarks comparing Simi with the RSS on the alleged terror issue.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
